'World Government' Plan to Stop Nazis

SENIOR politicians discussed a plan to surrender British sovereignty to a federal government of western democracies to combat the Nazis at the outbreak of the second world war.

Newly declassified documents held in Scottish archives reveal that a group of prominent statesmen, including Anthony Eden,Ernest Bevin, Herbert Morrison and Sir Archibald Sinclair, considered the establishment of a putative global state with its own federal government, currency, armed forces, trade bloc and even a common postal service.

Paranoia about the march of Nazism across Europe prompted the plan, which would have seen Britain, America, France, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, Ireland, Switzerland, the low countries and the Scandinavian states join together as a “nucleus world government”.
